APRIL FOOLS!!!

Send an April Fools Card!

Ouch. You knew you didn't really want to click on that link.... sorry, but we're afraid that the report of the Dodo discovery is a bit premature... unless you've seen one lately?

For those of you who live in a place where April Fool's Day is not celebrated, you're probably wondering what all this silliness is about... April Fool's Day is indeed a silly day. It is a time when it is perfectly acceptable to play pranks, jokes and surprises on everyone you know.

The origins are a bit unclear, but it seems that the fun may have started in 1582 in France. In that year, King Charles IX decreed that France would switch to the Gregorian calendar, thereby moving "New Year's Day" from March 25 to January 1. Those people that forgot about, or chose to ignore, the date change were sent foolish gifts and invited to imaginary parties. The butt of these jokes was called a "poisson d'avril" or "April Fish".

Of course, it is April Fools Day, so you never know what to believe, but if you want to share the fun with your friends you can send an April Fools card!

Have Fun!!!

Happy April Fools Day!
